As the coronavirus outbreak enters the BOOM! phase in a fast-increasing number of countries across the globe, world leaders are scrambling to implement tighter and tougher controls. Sadly, most of these desperate official actions will be necessary but insufficient. The time to adopt China’s heavy-handed tactics was weeks ago. At this point, the virus’ spread is assured; we can only play to slow its rate now. Which we should. Heart-breaking videos from health care workers show the hard choices being made in overwhelmed hospitals, forced to decide who lives and who dies as each new patient enters the overflowing emergency rooms. More of this is coming – a lot more – including truly gargantuation fiscal relief packages, in the coming weeks as we ride up, up, up the exponential curve of covid-19 infections. How well will these extreme actions work? Time will tell. Right now, we just have to ride out the storm as best we’re able.
